GEMSTONE LINKS Signs of the Zodiac

At one time gemstones were thought to be of celestial origin which led to the belief that they possessed supernatural or
magical powers.

The science of astrology is based on the supposed influences of the stars and planets on human affairs and terrestrial
events by their positions and aspects. Furthermore, it is believed that there is a relationship between each planet and
each sign of the zodiac and every person and every object (including gemstones) on the earth.

Thus it is thought by many that the influence of the planets over human fortunes is enhanced by wearing the gem appropriate to the planet or zodiac sign concerned. Astrologers from different cultures, religions and countries have, however, differed over the years in their interpretation of the influence of the planets and consequently on the gem appropriate to the sign of the zodiac.

The following zodiac gems are considered to be the most commonly accepted.
